debate and what could be mitt romney's best chance to change the trajectory of the race. president obama is holed up in vegas for two days preparing. mitt romney will be in colorado tonight. the latest poll shows president obama and mitt romney locked in a tight race nationally. but where it counts, those battle ground states, the president still leads. and here's another interesting poll. most people think the president will win the first debate which may be why he's trying to lower expectations. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the the zingers. governor romney is good. i'm just okay. >> and paul ryan played his own version. >> president obama is a gifted speaker. he's been on the national stage for many years. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> but if all candidates are trying to lower expectations, maybe chris christie missed that memo. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's

mitt romney turn this race upside down against the polls as the polls now say? chris christie said he can do it and guess what? mitt romney has done it before. going to show you what happened back in 2002 in a moment. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. have more fiber than other leading brands. they're the better way to enjoy your fiber. >>> he's mibehind in the polls. and voters just seem to like his opponent better. if you believe those polls. there's no question he's got a steep hill to climb, but guess what? he has been down this road before. and he won an election coming out of it. i want to take you back decades and indulge me. mitt romney, a republican candidate for governor in bluer than blue massachusetts. in mere weeks he went to a five-point winner on election night. and you know something? th
it will be hard to get back in this race. >> mitt romney has to avoid be appearing detached. his to-do list, the three cs show compassion, that he's competent and that he indeed can connect to voters. >> on those three cs, that's where he's got to really do well. >> reporter: while they lead in the polls, team obama know that debates can be a game-changer. he needs to avoid appearing irritable aor impatient. >> they need him to answer questions short, concise. >> the pressure is on for this debate. it could be a huge audience. anywhere between 50 million to 65 million may tune in to see these two men square off on wednesday night. >> david, great to see you live. >>> let's bring in "this week" host george stephanopoulos. the goal wednesday night is for each candidate to focus on the other person's weakness. >> exactly. to avoid a justin bieber moment. i think obviously, there's much more pressure as david said on mitt romney. he's got to force an error out of president obama, he wants to dominate the coverage coming out of the debate so that he can get some momentum. on one hand, he has to

for governor romney. >> jen, do you think this race is winnable for mitt romney? >> we're going to run in every state like we're five points down and we've always said this race was going to be close, so our message to our supporters is don't be complacent. don't rest on any polls. put your blinders on. keep focus on the playbook. we'll sleep and hopefully celebrate on november 7th. we know there's going to be twists and turns. it's a narrower path than i think we would like, but still, 38 days is a long time to go. >> she's got to say that, right? she's got to get her people out to vote. i want to ask you because there's been so much criticism of the polls from the rom thi side of things. people have said the polls assume more democrats are going to turn out. at cnn, our polls do not assume that and chris wallace, fox news, said the criticism of the polls crazyness. he said no self-respecting pollster in the country would a plig party, so even fox doesn't seem to be backing the conspiracy theorys on your side. >> all i'm doing is trying to explain there are different polls. one of the numbers
to tighten and move to governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> we heard from newt gingrich who has some experience standing on stage opposite mitt romney. he says one of the new challenges is to basically stand next to the president, indict his as he described them failed policy but doing them in a firm, respectful way. aids to both mitt romney and the president really try to get under their skin. it's moments like that that can get under the president's skin. >> that debate prep is tough because they have to challenge them with their weaknesses, that can't be fun but necessary. >>> well, just moments ago, the president left the white house en route to nevada for a campaign revent and a few days of debate preparations. >> governor romney, they have said that he's practiced zingers and lines for moves and months and months. >> i think the president's view is he's not worried about zingers and lines, he's got time with the american people to explain to them his case for re-election, about what he wants to do on the economy. >
this race start to tighten and then move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of the race will change. >> congressman paul ryan was pressed to explain the republican approach to tax policy during an interview yesterday. >> you're the master of the budget. briefly, let's go through the plan. the obama camp says independent groups say if you cut those tax rates for everybody, 20%, it costs $5 trillion over ten years. true? >> not in the least bit true. look, this just goes to show if you torture statistics enough, they'll confess to what you want them to confess to. >> how much does it cost? >> it's neutral. >> we'll get to the deductions. the cut in tax rates. >> lowers all americans tax rates. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless it takes away -- >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base -- >> you haven't given me the math? >> it would take me too long to go through all the math. >>> in massachusetts tonight, senator scott brown and his democratic challenge elizabeth warren face off in the seco
on senate or house races than on mitt romney and i think their ability to shift their resources could be determinate in the same way that when back in 1996 the republican party decided bob dole is a goner, let's invest in keeping majorities in senate. >> eliot: i think that moment has already occurred. they are moving money to the senate races. the wisconsin race that you talked about josh important for another reason if thompson loses, then the post election republican internal debate about what the party should do will have -- the far right will look at tommy thompson and say even he moderating didn't win. if he wins the central lists will say that is the victory. all right. we'll have to continue this. ken vogel, josh borro, thanks for your time tonight. >> thanks a lot, elliot. >>> the wife of (vo) this program is presented by american express. welcome to the possibilities of membership. welcome in. american express. we've all had those moments. when you lost the thing you can't believe you lost. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little
great for romney right now. but the race could change five times between now and election day, especially we haven't had the debate. the media is sort of wishful thinking trying to write off romney and i normally do not buy into the media that the media is completely on board on one side, this is the exception, this campaign season has been especially egregious in terms of them ignoring things bad about president obama and obsessing over things that are-- that mitt romney has done wrong. >> rick: cal, why? >> why? you have to ask why? >> i have to ask. >> oh, my goodness. well, first of all, these polls, we have talked about this before on the show. i'm opposed to news organizations doing their own polls and making news from them. what are you're going to see ten days, two weeks before the election, the story line, hey, the race is tightening because they want ratings and they want to sell newspapers, but these things are a sophisticated form of fortune telling. i passed on the way to the studio, a psychic, i almost said stop the cab and let me see who is going to win the el
at this. it's remarkable. here's how the race looked before romney's 47% comment became public. some ups and downs but overall a pretty steady race. here's the race since the 47% video surfaced last monday. it's clear, it's a clear shift toward the president as americans learn more and more about romney, who romney is and how he views so many americans. two candidates, two visions in this election. we're all in this together or you're on your own. bill job build jobs from the bottom up or harvest jobs. joining me from mother jones, he broke the news about this harvest video a week after the 47% video itself. and michelle carter, washington correspondent for the newsweek daily beast. thank you both for joining me. >> thanks, rev. >> now, david, the romney campaign has responded to this harvest video. they said, quote, in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital by turning around broken companies, creating and saving thousands of jobs. the problem today is that president obama hasn't been able to turn around our economy in the same way. end of that quote.
%. and down in north carolina, the race a little closer with president obama at 48% and governor romney 46%. and out west in nevada, obama, 49%, romney, 47%. but while the president holds the overall edge, voters seem less sure as to which candidate would do a better job fixing the economy. in new hampshire, 49% believe that the president would do a better job than mitt romney. 46% believe that mitt romney would do a better job. in north carolina, 47% think that mitt romney's the man to fix the economy, slightly ahead of president obama there who's at 46%. and back out to nevada, 46% think that mitt romney will do a better job, and 47% in nevada think the president can better handle the problems in the economy. that's a question of particular interest in nevada, with of course the housing crisis being at its worst there and unemployment also being above the national average. so does mitt romney have time to make up the difference when it comes to the horse race? here's what nate silver, "the new york times" numbers guru and keeper of the famous 538 blog told nbc's david gregory for the pre
and colorado races are close, mitt romney chose to campaign today in pennsylvania. he told the crowd at the military academy. >> romney: i want to take that big cloud off of the small business world that is hang over them. three-quarters say they don't want to hire more people because of obamacare. [ cheers ] >> eliot: despite the fact that he sited his romney care act as a great success. meanwhile, both sides are gearing up for next week's big event. wednesday's first presidential debate between the two contenders. both sides are working hard to shape expectations. beth myers sent out a memo that read in part . . . and obama campaign senior strategy david axelrod wrote, and i quote . . . for more on the expectations gain i'm joined by brent brent coburn. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> eliot: the expectation game, could we agree for the moment they are both really smart guys and we're hopefully going to have a good debate about substance. >> that's our hope. the debates a great opportunity for the american people tune in and the candidates te

of this is this race between romney and the president. is that the polls reflect just as you said, what you are showing there on economic policy. >> yeah. >> the idea that it is this close is once, you know, it's surprising that romney is doing this well. it is surprising that the president is doing this well. it. >> bill: why is it surprising that romney is doing this well? >> because, if you turn on any television set, where there are people who are paying attention to this, somebody has advice about how romney can be doing better. >> bill: all right. >> they talk as if he is 10 points down. bill about bill that's a good point. the media is slapping him around. >> absolutely. >> bill: 40% of the american people, 40% think that barack obama's economic policies have helped this country. now, let's be fair though. they have helped the auto industry. >> yeah. >> bill: you would cede that. >> i would say that they have helped the unions. they have helped fiat. they have helped. >> bill: they have helped g.m. certainly. they paid the money back g.m. and it is certainly making president obama competitive in
point in the race for president. both president obama and mitt romney have stopped campaigning this weekend instead burrowing into hard-core debate prep cramming their facts and honing their one-liners. it's "your voice, your vote" with just 37 days left until the election. abc's david kerley who usually joins us from washington is here at the desk. good to see you. >> nice to be here. you know, dan, this is a really big debate. this is part performance, part policy. the stakes are always high. but for mitt romney, some are saying it is make or break. and for the president, leading in the polls, it's a matter of not letting his challenger back into the race. president obama travels to nevada this morning where he will spend the next three days in debate camp reportedly at this posh resort in henderson. and he heads into the debate with the latest gallup tracking poll still showing mr. obama holding a lead. this morning it's six points. >> this is the ball game for mitt romney right now because if he doesn't do well in this debate, it's going to be hard for him to get back in th

gubernatorial race, that's okay. that's what the people wanted and that's fine and mitt romney says the same thing to nick lehm thabwh wt todo, tryo communicate that as well as i can and if they vote for me, fine. if they don't, then fine. that's what it is. he doesn't need toin like clinton and obama needed to win to validate themselves. >> all right. and now one othe classic awkward es tngbo ban. it's getting tougher and more expensive. we are talking about actual bacon here. not the figurative stuff we talk about in politics. u.s. has a looming por shortage thanks to this summer's drought driving up the cost of feed to hogs and cut t numr of pigs that farmers raise. next year, a 12% drop in pounds of bacon per american and the cost could rise by more than a dollar a pound and not stopping red blooded americans. >> i would p double thator bacon. us a t pork chops. enjoy, you know, everything from the little piggy. >> price don't matter at my age. i'm 82 years old. i can have what i want. >> this is the michele obama nanny state ug. >>sure. someone is responsible for this. some mo. veeata t
in a presidential race before, that mitt romney has become a captive of it. as we have seen in the senate races that are shifting more and more towards democrats who are expeed to lose or be mpete,t'sbout t republicans are in washington and really radical message that romney is saddled with and he can't get out of it. the 47% remark is devastating because iteally reflects what so many people in th rlica majority in washington, in the house particularly, believe, that these are free loaders, that these are people that aren't worthy of our consideration really as human beings in our social coract mneyd out lt in his party leave and what an ideology in his party has come to embrace. it was no accident he said it. he stuck with it. >> that would be a radical shift from what a lot of people thought thisampaign would be, lynn, and certainly what t romney campaign wanted it to be whh i aerm on the president. do you agree that this could be a referendum on the republican party and republicans in congress? >> well, i respectfully disagree a bit because in the end this is more about the two men running,
who live in states that don't have any contested races this year, when mr. romney is in massachusetts, it's not a swing state but massachusetts does have a really contested senate race. republican senator scott brown is trying desperately, very desperately, to fend off a challenge from democratic candidate elizabeth warren. i use the word desperate on purpose. after releasing one ad attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race, after his staffers were caught childishly mocking native americans with the whole tom hawk chop and war whoop thing, after the cherokee nation asked scott brown to apologize for that and he refused to do so, after all that scott brown has put out a second ad just today again attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race. the scott brown campaign must have some amazing internal poll numbers showing that a race-based campaign is working wonders for him. because i don't know how else you explain this. it's not a whisper campaign, anonymous flyers on windshields in church parking lots like we used to expect for this sort of thing. this comes straight from the
